What are the best writing websites to get assignments?
That question shows up in the Make a Living Writing inbox over and over.
And it’s a fair question. New writing websites keep popping up all the time.
They all work basically the same. Hand over your email address. Create a profile. Get access to a list of freelance writing jobs. Or bid on work against hundreds of others. Sound familiar?
The big question: Can you actually make a living cranking out assignments through one of these writing websites, that connect freelancers with clients?
If you’re new to freelance writing, there’s a pretty good chance you’ve tried your hand at some of these writing websites. Maybe there’s potential there, maybe not.
